Sibsets: What’s the best you’ve ever heard?

We’ve talked a lot here about sibsets—those hopefully harmonious pairings of the names of the brothers and sisters in a family, and the elements to consider in order to achieve that harmony—sound, tone, style, syllables….matchy-matchy or not for twins…

Taking all that into consideration, the question of the week is:

What is the best sibset you’ve ever heard—and/or- -if you’re so inclined– what’s the worst? (Twins and other multiples included.)

I have a friend whose family childrens names are great as a sibset in my opinion. Her children are Trevor, Connor, and Sophie. All of them have names that age well and are popular without be wildly popular. Plus I like that all of the children have an O in their names but don’t have the same first initials or ending (although Trevor and Connor do).

Well, I’m sure that these aren’t the best – But my two boys are Matthew & Nathaniel and I love how they work well together (both being longer/fuller names with nickname potential, both very old biblical names, both very masculine)

A bad sib-set, my husband and his sister… Michael and Michelle
Another bad sib-set, my two older sisters… Kelly and Shelly

One of my sisters has 2 daughters and a son… Delina, Laurie, and Nicholas “Nick”
The other has a daughter and son… “Daina (pronounced Day-na) and Tyler “Ty”
Both of these sets work well together IMO – The first has feminine girl names and masculine boy names. The second has shorter names that are a bit less formal…

I have to say, one of the worst sibsets I’ve encountered was a good friend of mine’s brood, and as much as I love her, I cannot say I love her name choices. She has three daughters: Jazlyn, Brylin, and Kaylen, and one son: Aadon. The matching endings combined with four different ways of spelling essentially the same sound (-en, -on, -yn, -in) just doesn’t work for me.

My favorite sibset (besides my daughters, of course!) would have to be August, Maisy, and Lionel. They just seem to fit perfectly together 🙂

Julia Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 4:02 am

My brother and I are, Julia and Jacob. Which I think makes a rather nice sounding set of names.

Rachael Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 4:41 am

I nannied a little boy and girl named Owen and Zoe. Their nicknames were O and Zo. I thought that was a perfect sib set. Then the parents couldn’t come up with a name for their third child so they gave up on matching it with the other children and picked Charles with Charlie and Char as nicknames.

Worst sib set- Paul and Pauline. They are the names of my father in law and his twin sister.

Kathryn Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 4:56 am

My siblings and I are Allison, Kathryn and Joseph. I think they work well together, although I think the spellings Alison, Catherine and Joseph look more timeless. Still, I wouldn’t change the spelling of my name. It obviously means something to my parents if they chose it.

Some good ones I’ve heard:
Emily and Olivia
Thomas, Luke and James
Heidi and Andrew

I can’t really think of any awful sibsets off the top of my head.

Amber Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 5:51 am

Well I think my kids’ names are great! Big brother Henry and twins Georgia & Miles.

Katie Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 7:53 am

I ran into a high school friend shopping with two little girls. Turns out they were his girlfriend’s daughters, Kayla and Kaylee. I raised my eyebrows and he laughed and said, “They have a sister running around here somewhere named Kaylyn.”

Kayla, Kaylee and Kaylyn. Awful. Plus when the names are that similar, everyone pronounces them oddly, putting emphasis on the last syllable. KayLA, KayLEE, and KayLYN. very awkward sounding.

Crescentmoon Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 7:57 am

The best I’ve heard is Charlotte and Beatrice. The names are the same style, have the same type of flow, and just work perfectly together.
The worst I’ve heard is probably Sean and Siobhan.

Lacey Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 8:03 am

Amber, I love your sibset, just my style and they sound awesome together!

I think my kids’ names sound great together…..I have Amelia and Charlotte.

I also know:
Benjamin and Isaac (Ben and Ike)
Rowan and Isla
Eli and Sylvia
Caroline and Sylvie
Amelia, Caroline, Greta, and Wyatt

Sassy Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 8:19 am

My brother and I are Stephanie and Robert. I think they sound nice together and apparently, other people do too. My friend’s hub is Rob and his sister Stephanie.

phaedra Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 8:21 am

Oh, love Henry, Georgia and Miles!

Well, I heard a sibset that I absolutely love, even though it’s totally not my style. I go for traditional names. But I found out about a set that has 3 girls named Aubyn, Halla, and Andra. (There are also 2 boys, Colin, and I can’t remember the other.)

Even though I’m not one for newly coined names, that set just flows together perfectly. I find it impossible not to like.

Before I became a mommy, I was a dance teacher. I often got to teach all the kids in a family. One family I knew had five daughters, and they all had amazing names, popular now, but these girls were named before their names became trendy. The eldest is now about 27 or so, the youngest is probably 15. Their names are: Violet, Nina, Sophie, Avril, and Alice. I always wanted to ask their mom how she chose their names….

Several other good ones I know of: a good friend of mine, and her brother, are Veronica and Diego. (Their mom is French, their father is Guatemalan). Another friend has two babies named Augustus (Gus) and Sabine.

Not the worst I’ve heard, but I always shake my head when I contemplate it: my cousin and his wife named their kids Ava and Evan. They are not twins (not that that would make it any better). They probably both come running when their mom yells out one of their names….

phaedra Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 8:25 am

Oh and the worst: Stephen and Stephanie.

I’m noticing a pattern here.

crazycat4904 Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 8:51 am

There were these girls in my school. Idk if you’ll find them to be the best names, but I always thought they were interesting. lol. Mercedes, Zohra, Elodia, and Lorraine. Gorgeous girls.

The worst I heard, hmm… can’t think of any at the moment. = )

linzybindi Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 8:54 am

LOL phaedra…I’m noticing a pattern too!

The worst would have to be my great grandma and her twin sister. Their names were Della and Stella! That is so terrible.

The best I’ve heard…this is tough…

My friend has boys named Atticus and August…I really like their names

Luciano, Nicolas and Natalia would be another favorite. They are adorable!

freckles Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 9:03 am

I’ve always thought my parents did a good job matching my sisters name with mine, I’m Lisa and she’s Robin. We were both born in the early 90s. So our names weren’t popular but were familiar due to their popularity in the 60s/70s, easy to say/spell, relatively nicknameless, etc. Sibsets in my extended family have always interested me.

One of my aunts has four kids- Joshua (Josh), Rachel, Jeffrey (Jeff) and Jeremy. I always thought it was a little odd that they stuck an “R” name in there amongst all those Js. I have another aunt with five kids- Aaron, Daniel, Alexander, Jonathan and Sarah. I’ve always loved their names together- classic, timeless, all familiar and relatively popular. The only one I’ve ever wondered about is Alexander, the only non-biblical name of the bunch. An uncle of mine has three daughters- Lauren, Claudia and Brooke. Lauren and Brooke go very well together for me, but I find Claudia a bit frillier and less common.

One set I went to school with (I’ve mentioned them here before) is Bliss, Calypso and Isaiah. I’ve always marveled at that set. Other interesting sets amongst school mates of mine: Thomas Elizabeth and Brian (so classic!), Caitlin James Thomas and William (again, so classic!), Celia and Theodore, Julia Claire Arthur and Emily, Emma Sophie Molly and Aaron, Sean (f) and Alec, Jonah and Benjamin, Harrison Annabelle Gillian and Caitlin.

Some of the less good sets I know: Jon and Jen (full names! and yes, they are twins!), Raechel Daniela and Jaclyn (I like Daniela, but the spellings of the other two, esp. Raechel bother me), Jayden and Alice (so different!).

ChaarBear Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 9:07 am

I was also a dance teacher and I thought this family of four girls had beautifully complimentary names: Anna, Julia, Caroline and Lauren. They are just as beautiful as their names as well!

Lola Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 9:10 am

Well, I think my kids are a pretty nice set: Leo, Simon & Josephine. But hey, they’re mine, I’ll love ’em anyway.

The best set I know of online is Elisabeth’s of YCCII: Beatrix & Eulalie are fabulous together!

The best set I know of in RL are the kids down the street: Byron & Claudia. Classic, strong & gorgeous!

I know lots of mismatched sibs but would rather focus on the good ones!

Rebecca Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 9:23 am

I think my siblings and I are pretty good – Rebecca, Rachel, and Mathew. Traditional and all from the bible…even though we never once went to church. (Oddly enough, a close friend from high school just had her second and their names are Matthew and Rachel!)
To Nyx above, my brother’s full name is Mathew Richard Nathan, so I really like your boys’ names of Matthew and Nathaniel.

Another friend (twin to the one mentioned above) just had her second and their names are Evelyn and William, which I quite like. (Interesting story that she and her twin have given birth to both of their children within two weeks of each other!)

Worst? Merry and Terry – twin girls, one of whom I work with. Just terrible.

Madi Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 9:45 am

One of the oddest sibsets I’ve heard is from a family I babysit for. Their children are Tyler, Teyah, and Casey (girl). They just don’t seem to fit. Another set is my teacher’s five kids: Donovan James, Shannon, Gaelen, Trevor, and Keeley. After such distinctively Irish names, I just don’t feel like the last two blend with the rest of the family.

I can’t think of any particularly great ones off the top of my head, but I do like my neighbors two girls: Shannon and Erin.

Julia Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:05 am

The best sibset I know is Katherine, Margot, Byron, and Louise. They range from about 27 to 11 (Louise is the youngest). I live in the US.

An unusual sibset i know are mid 20s, Celia and Joyce. (They are Chinese/British). I wouldn’t think to put those 2 names together.

Andrea Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:17 am

My cousin’s two kids are Maximus and Lilia (Max and Lily), which go well together. But as long as you don’t give a kid the same name as his sibling or make it so similar that no one can tell them apart, you’re probably ahead. I’ve encountered several sets of multiples named Hailey and Kaylee or Hailey and Bailey or Brenton and Brendon, etc., which I always thought was horrible.

Nikki Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:18 am

The worst sibset that I know has to be my step-mother and her brother

Sharon and Darren nns Shaz and Daz

I think that the best that I know is Jasmine, Scarlett and Solomon. They’re not my style of name but I think they fit well. I also like Eve and Sebastian. All are names of children that I have babysat.

Andrea Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:19 am

I’d have to say, though, that the twins Jasper (boy) and Juniper (girl) and their baby sister Medora Apple is probably the best combination I’ve heard in years.

belly Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:20 am

I don’t know for sure what the best sibset I’ve ever heard was. But, I have to say that I never realized just how important “good” sibsets really are to me until recently. I knew of someone who had a little daughter, Anneliese, and they were having another girl. I just found out that the new baby’s name is Natalie. And I flipped out! I just feel like a name like Anneliese requires another Old World Germanic kind of name. I would have named the new baby Adelaide or Hannelore or something…. I barely know these people, they are just friends of friends, but it really bothered me. I think I’ve become even more obsessed than ever with sibsets after reading so much about them here!

canyr12 Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:25 am

I met a sibset once of Aiden, Brayden, and Hayden – 2 boys and a girl.

British American Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:28 am

My favourite is probably: Ruby, Cora & Leo. (Cora & Leo are twins.)

I also like Sean, Hope & Brooke together – all being one syllable.

Annelise Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:31 am

laughing about Belly’s post above…
My name is Annelise. My parents tried to simplify the spelling (from Anneliese) but it really didn’t do any good, and so they named my sister Emily–very easy to spell & pronounce! I bet the family you met had a similar experience. At least Emily & Natalie match Anneliese phonetically.

But back to my favorite sibsets:
Angeline, Rosalee, and Miranda are childhood playmates
John Alexander (John Alex), Nelson (Nels) and Alton are the names of a good friend and his brothers

veganxmommy Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:45 am

Close family friends have a great sibset, they are a Greek and Italian family. All of the girls have a classic, but Greek in origin first name and the son is named after his father: Alexandra (Ally), Katherine, Vincent (Vin), and Margaret (Maggie).

My sister and I are Jillian and Gabrielle.

Sassafrass Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:48 am

Oh I LOVE some of these!
Henry, Georgia & Miles
Leo, Simon & Josephine
Beatrix & Eulalie
Jasper, Juniper & Medora Apple
Ruby, Cora & Leo

Almost makes me want to have another kid just so I can name him/her! But I definitely will pick something that “flows” with my first son’s name, which does make it harder. His name is Oliver, we call him O and I hope I can be as adventurous as the ones I love above!

I have family members that named their twins Emma & Ella. It’s so confusing. They look nothing alike so it’s not that I get them confused, but I always have to stop to remember which one is which. The names just aren’t distinctive enough. I also knew twins named Kristi and Misti. Seriously.

Katalina Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:49 am

I like my siblings and my names together: Kaitlin, Ansley, Luke, Sophie, and Cohen. We’ve all got biblical middle names.
I also like my best friend’s family: Meagan, Amber, Hallie, Griffin, and Rylee. I love all their names 🙂
And another friend’s family: Alexia, Scott, Carolina, Cecelia, Sophia, and Serena.

The worst might be my mom and her brother: Stephanie and Stephen.

Bella Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 11:03 am

Let’s see, my cousins have named their babies well, Sommer has a son and a daughter- Seth and Hattie

My cousin Keil (yes, as in the boat part, she hates it and her mn Waine, yikes!) wanted great names for her three girls named- Ella, Maddy and Selah

One horrible sib-set- Mckinnon, Mckayla, Mckade, and Landon, yeah, I know, why Landon, or rather why not Landon, and why the triple Mck?

My sister (who is in heaven) was Grace Christina, I’m Gabrielle Carolina, FD Gwendolyn Capri; I really like the GC initials.

I think my future sib-set will be heavenly!

Gwendolyn Capri Chilali
Marion Tessia Paisley
Carston Raphael Noam
Fallon Ovidia Ivy
Eleazar Dexter Rhett

I could go on, I want a great (large) sib-set!

Ruby, Cora and Leo is awesome!

Blessings,

Bella <3

A friend has 3 boys — Max, Finn and Gus, who are ages 4-7 so she was a little ahead of the trend. Love the sibset!!

The worst I’ve heard would be another friend who has 4 girls — Madison (10), McKenna (6), Jordyn and Ashlyn (2 year old twins). Clearly, she loves names at the height of their popularity.

Chantelle Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 11:26 am

My sister named her 2 sons: Anderson (nickname Anders) and Trenton. I’m so curious what she’ll name her next one! My daughter’s names are Linaya, Alycen and the names I was thinking of for my next daughter were: Kasidy, Harmony, Isabel or Juliet, but instead I named her my very favorite names of all time: KRISTIANA FELICITY. For a boy we would have named him Kyler, Malikye (nickname Kye) and my husband loves the name Dartanian and it’s starting to grow on me, but who knows if we’ll ever have a boy 😛 I wanted Linaya’s second name to be Jaide and I still call her LINAYA JAIDE sometimes, but my husband wanted my name to be her second name. We named Alycen’s second name after my husband’s mom Susanna and my mom’s name is Christine Anne and so we named Kristiana after her. I first heard the name Christianna when my Dad read me the book Pilgrims Progress 🙂 If I were to give anyone advice about naming their child – I would say to name them a name that you’ve loved since you were a child, and make sure it goes with your last name and that no-one can make fun of it. My parents have 10 children: Chantelle, Jonathan, Melodie, Helene, Rebecca, Aline, Katherine, Nathaniel, Sara and David. I love the names Melodie, Rebecca and especially NATHANIEL

Nikki Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 12:32 pm

I have always loved Davis and Maisie together.

Wildsyringa Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 12:33 pm

Growing up, my next door neighbors had identical twin girls names Mary and Marie. Both very nice names, but WAY too close for twins.

Other sib-sets I know that stand out as particularly terrible: Drayden and SkotLynd; Brevin and Gamble.

Angela Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 12:40 pm

My 3 boys:
Zachary John, Ryan Michael, and Reece Matthew.
They go by Zack, Ryan, and Reece.

If I have another I am not sure where to take the pattern…

Other sibsets in my neighborhood, some good, some bad:
Ryan and Kate
Ben and Celia
Sarah and Matthew
Billy(William), Cami(Camille), and Sam(Samantha)
Sophia, Tai, Simone, Aidan
Christopher, Jack, and Kate
Madison, Nick, Olivia
Mikey and Mae
Kieran, Rowan, and Sloane(all girls)

Best that I know:

1) Jack Thomas and Bella Kate
2) Lucy and Nora (twins) with baby sis Charlotte
3) And my boys 🙂 : Theo and Max (daydreaming of adding Gus to the set soon!)

Also, I love all of the Dixie Chicks sibsets. Can’t think of them off hand, but they are cool!

lanada Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 12:50 pm

One of my favorite sibsets: Lucy, Tessa, Claire, and Grace. Simple, classic, elegant, and (when compared to the Jessicas and Jennifers of the time) fairly unique. As one of those ubiquitous Jennifers, I’m so jealous.

One of my least favorites: Megan, Mitchell, Michelle (nn Shelly, because it sounds so much like Mitchell), Margaret (nn Maggie), Miranda (nn Mandy), and Matthew. Their last name starts with an M, no less. That’s just Mean.

braveangel2 Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 1:40 pm

Older friends of the family are two brothers and a sister – William, Miles and Rosemary. These names just make me happy.

olivegreen Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 1:47 pm

Some of the best I know or have met recently: My neighbor’s kids Dominic and Sophia, my cousin’s kids, Nathanial and Celeste, and two little twins I met the other day named Flora and Jane. I also know of a Lucy and Frances, an Oliver and Poppy, and a Stella and Hazel.

braveangel2 Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 2:07 pm

My absolute favorite sibset is Gabrielle Blair’s (Design Mom fame)…

Ralph, Maude, Olive, Oscar, Betty, and Flora June

Azure Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 2:20 pm

These are fun to read!

My girlfriend has two boys named Enzo and Otis, which I think are a perfect match.

I know girl/boy twins named Caley and Caleb, which are too close for me.

Of course, I love my girls’ names together: Phoenix and Indigo.

ATS Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 2:25 pm

I have an aunt named Shelly Mae and her sisters name is Nelly Fae.

My mother is named Suellen and her identical twin is named Raellen.
Got to love the 50s…

Galatea Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 2:56 pm

I think too much fuss is made over sibsets. Once past young childhood, how many times are their names all going to be said in a row? I suppose it is part of our nameberry obsession to care, but in the course of a whole lifetime, I don’t think it matters.

FWIW, my mother’s sibset was weird: Niles, Lyle, Bruce and Kathleen (30s-40s.) Niles and Lyle, Niles and Lyle, Niles and Lyle.

My own kids’ sibset don’t really go together the greatest, as our tastes have changed over the past 7 years, but I am okay with that: Maddox, Miles, Juliet.

Alesia and Alexander are nice.

pandora88 Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 4:05 pm

I knew two twins named Gina and Tina. Even as a seven-year-old, I knew there was something terribly wrong with that. Definitely the worst sibset I’ve encountered.
A sibset I like is Annika (AHN-ika) and Nadia. Also, Noah (a boy) and Adli (a girl).

Devon Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 4:19 pm

My mum and her siblings have the best sib-set I’ve heard of: Elizabeth, William, Anne & John. All classic, strong, royal and beautiful names.

Meg Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 5:02 pm

Penelope and Vivian.

My girls!! Of course, I am biased. 🙂

Tysha Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 6:06 pm

I get a lot of compliments on my son and daughter’s names together (he is 2 and she is 6 months): Sawyer and Aspen.

I am also an identical twin and always got compliments on me and my sisters unique names: Tysha & Tia.

I guess you could say we like unique-ish names but not off the charts unique. It helps when you can actually pronounce the names 😉

Joy Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 6:14 pm

My sis and I have the best Sib set names ever. We’re identical twins we are Cherish and Joy! They work well together no conflicts at all.

My godsisters are Jade, Imani and Aaliyah, they are all feminine and strong names for their age era. Nn are Jay, Mani and Li- Li.

Worst.
Sisters named Nature and Honesty. No comment.

Elisabeth@YCCII Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 6:56 pm

Honored to see my children’s names mentioned! Thanks Lola. It’s good to see you around. I’d say your children qualify as well. 🙂

Best IRL that I’ve met: W!llam!na and Sy1van; Decl@n and Sever!ne, Ph0ebe and 0ndine, 0dette and Im0gen.

Colette and William.
Bree, Laurel, Paige, Reina, Jenna, Kendra, and Mason

Mamie Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 7:54 pm

Worst sib set – A friend of mine encountered twins named Navaeh and Nivaeh with the same middle name through his work. He had to process some information regarding them which he said was a nightmare since they share the same birthday, middle and last name and have basically the same first name.

My favorite sib set is family friends of mine who are now between 16 and 30: Leane (with an accent, pronounced Lay-anne, Remi, Genevieve, Annette and Celia

hbar4 Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 8:10 pm

I think the worse sibset I have heard is my neighbor’s twins named Savannah and Georgia. I love both of these names independently, but these were unfortunate because I live in Savannah, Georgia.

I love Adelaide and Vivienne – but these are my own kids names, so I am bias.

My good friends kids are Jack, Clare, Lilly and Sam. Cute, I think.

chrbaker Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 8:39 pm

My favorite real-life sibset is from a family with two beautiful little girls named Tallulah and Matilda! The parents affectionately call them Lula and Mattie. I would love it even more if they called them Lula and Tilly!

And the oddest sibset is from a distant relative’s family who might also be mentioned in my favorites category with 3 children named Sadie, Violet, and Milo…until you throw in the name of their second born child…Treyson.

chrbaker Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 8:52 pm

Ok, and I wasn’t going to mention this, because people never believe me! I know this sounds like one of those name urban legends (like lemonjelo and oranjelo), but I 100% promise this is true…so at a past job we had an older receptionist who worked for us for a short period of time named Regina…only it was pronounced Reg-eye-na…so it rhymes with Va…well you can figure out what it rhymed with. So my coworkers and I quickly dubbed her Reggie, but eventually I couldn’t stand it anymore and finally asked her why her parents had chosen that particular pronunciation and she matter of factly explained that she actually had a twin sister named…Regina. NO SPELLING DIFFERENCE! Only it was pronounced Reg-ee-na! I have never heard anything else ever come close to that!

Becca Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 9:23 pm

I think me and my bro and sis have a good sibset. Mark, Elizabeth (Liz) & Rebecca (Becca) all Bible names! My mother has 6 siblings and they are
Peggy, Lana, Jack (named after dad but goes by J), Geoffrey, Lucy, Michelle & Roy! I think they are fine!

I don’t have kids yet but when I do I want them to have names that I love but also names that will go together!

This was really fun to read!

Susan Chesney Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 9:49 pm

Henry and Alice – brother and sister
Peter and Laura – brother and sister
Amelia and Linus – sister and brother
Danica and Spencer – sister and brother
Paige and Noah – sister and brother
Laura, Mary, William, and Elizabeth – three sisters and a brother
Veronika and Lara – two sisters (half Polish)
Chloe and Bruno – sister and brother (half French)

Melissa Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 10:16 pm

I must say, I am biased toward my own sibset. Just wish I could keep adding to it!

Emerson Jeremiah (EJ), Clara Joelle (Clara Jo), Matilda Ruth (Tilly).

I adore the Cora and Leo sibset. We might one day add a Penelope (nn Posey) or a Winston to our sibset.

I have a dear friend with identical twin girls. LOVE her combo of Elsie Lael and Adelle Inez.

greatbird Says:

August 11th, 2010 at 11:54 pm

My sibling and I are Tai and Kai. It drives me crazy! We both come running when one name is called, and my parents get mad if we don’t respond because we thought it was the other one. We aren’t twins though, we’re several years apart.

One of my favorites is Amber and Dominique. They’re twins, and although the names themselves aren’t my favorite, the two together rolls off your tongue and work well.

My drama teacher had four kids, who I always felt were the best and worst sibset all in one family: Mary (she went by Marley), Edward (jr, went by Eddie), Margaret (Maggie), and Kelsey. I always felt Kelsey stuck out a bit, as it seemed far more trendy. It was even a joke within the family, that she was the odd one out because she was the only girl without an M name, and didn’t have a nickname. Otherwise, I loved the combo of names.

I know a Matthew, Nicole, and Leah. I’m not in love with any of the names (though I do like Leah a lot), but I think they fit together really well. And they have a heavy German last name, so I think the combo of familiar and clean first names with something clunky and heavy at the end is great.

I was a camp counselor for YEARS, and we were in the same boat as the dance teachers: we’d see many siblings coming through (including our own).

Best:
Allison (Ally), Madeleine (Maddy), Mackenzie, and Carter. They’re all unpretentious and sturdy names, hard to mispronounce and fit well with the family’s impossible Polish surname. Also, all the kids look like their names.
My neighbors: Alexandra (also an Ally), Mary, Ava Grace, and Ralph (“rafe”). All short and sweet, and all names that will grow with them.
Coworker’s half/stepsiblings: Noah and Grace.
Coworker and her sisters: Stephanie, Suzanne, and Nicole. I like all-sister sibsets with more feminine names; it reminds me of Pride and Prejudice. Of course, how do you plan for that?

And then there’s…
Neighbors: John, Sean, and Ian. I guess they liked John SO MUCH they decided they’d just name the other two variations on it? It’s like Pete and Pete over there!
Bryson (older brother) and Bayley & Brenner (twin boys). I guess some people would call this a Best, but I’m not a fan of matching first letters.
We had two sisters come in years apart: Madison and Layla. Both are very athletic, reject girly norms, etc.; Madison fits, but Layla seems overtly feminine and neither suits the girl well nor matches with the unisex, elegant-but-utilitarian feeling of Madison. I asked the littler one, and she says that she was named for the song. Go figure.
I have a very good friend who is the oldest of three: Tia, Tori, and Tavi (TAY-vee). But it was nearly a year before I found out those are all nicknames: Antia, Antoria, and Antavia.
I’ve been trying to remember my old coworker’s twins’ names. They were both on the formula of DaSomething/TraSomething, and I remember that the prefix part for each was a rearrangement of the letters in the second part of the other’s. It was something like TyReice and RiTeyce, something like that. There were Zs and Ks in there.

I’m also wary of sibset names, especially cutesy twin names. One day, your kid will be an adult and have to introduce himself in business meetings — do you want him to constantly be explaining that yes, Peanut Butter is an unusual name, but he has a twin sister named Jelly, so it all makes sense? (Obvious exaggeration. I hope no one is naming their kids after sandwiches.)

Ellerie Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 1:22 am

@Kem: I KNOW THEM! Marley and Eddie are good friends, and I kind of know Maggie and Kelsey. What a lovely family they are.

Nyx Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 2:14 am

Oh, I’ve got to add another “worst”
When I went to high school (early ’90s) there was a set of identical twin boys. It seems their mom knew that she was having identical twins, but didn’t want to know the sex. She chose the names Shannon & Courtney and had it put on the birth certificate before they were born. Both of these names were pretty popular girls names and unheard of (where I grew up) as boys names… I always felt sorry for these guys

LJandRL Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 3:23 am

Umm best would either be 4 sisters I know called Charlotte (Lottie), Mabel, Agnes and Martha.

3 sisters I went to school with called Nadia, Arabella (Bella) and Phoebe.

3 of my cousins who are: Joseph, Francesca and Liam.

Worst might possibly be a friend of mine and her siblings. She has an elder brother Reece, then its her (Rohanna) and her identical twin sister Arielle, then a younger sister Isabel and a younger brother Jordan. I just think Reece spelt that way is quite feminine, then although I like both Arielle and Rohanna’s names I hate that Rohanna has a matching initial with her elder brother but her twin doesn’t, and that Arielle’s ending rhymes with her younger sister Isabels. Then Jordan seems trendy and completely out of place. I don’t like matchy matchy twin names but then it seems even sillier to match them with their other siblings but not each other!

Elisabeth@YCCII Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 7:50 am

I just adore Lottie, Mabel, Agnes and Martha together.

It’s interesting that just in this thread we see what a personal journey names are. Some of the favorite sibsets listed here I’m less than enthusiastic about. Most are very exciting though.

Caitalinna Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 7:50 am

Some of my favorites are Sylvie, Delphine and Lisette. Their mother (Solange) is from France, her husband- an American- met her when he was studying abroad.I think their names are gorgeous and work well together 🙂 I also am close friends with Chloe and Sophia (Sophie) who were born in 1983 and 1987, so before these names were at all popular. Other sibsets I like: Daniel and Thomas. Kelly and Ryan
Helen and Timothy
Colby (b) and Jordan (b).

Sara A. Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 9:54 am

My husband and his sibs have really great names: Alden, Basil, Calvin and Zoe. Actually his extended family has really great sib sets:
Tess and Cody
Ari (Arthur) and Ellie (Elleanor)
Marina and Amelia
Emily and John

When I was a kid I used to play with the following kids that stand out to me now:
Jenny and Eric
Ben David and Michael
Lisa and Kristy
Tracy, Bay (nn for Madeline), and Cory
Se Way (brother) and Li Ling (sister)

My older cousins have started to produce more cousins and with our stereotypically Eastern European last names Logan and Quinn sound really wrong with it while sounding fine with each other. Another of my older cousins has two boys named Miles and Marcus which work well together and with her husband’s last name.

dancer4life Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 10:56 am

My dance teacher’s kids are named Devin, Mia, Zoe, Eli, and Max. I think these names fit together because they are short and sort of trendy.

Worst sibset: Oliver and Brandy. I have never understood why someone would name their child Brandy and it just doesn’t go with the classic name Oliver.

strawberry Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 11:15 am

Oh, I thought of another set I don’t like. The family is lovely, the names are just not my cup o’tea:

Sisters Asia and Savannah, brothers Sam and Judah. The boy names are great traditional, biblical names, the girls are trendy place-names.

Cooper Patrick and Campbell Edith.
Third to follow in a few months.
I am certain it will be a big deal as well.

ycw Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 2:50 pm

I like my kids:
Hannah and Peter (next will probably be Benjamin or Rebecca)
Their cousins:
Joshua, Arielle, and Naomi
Friends my age:
Johanna, Joel, Jeremy, and Jonathan (I don’t love all the same letters, but they’re great names)
A pair from church:
Josiah and Susan (seemed odd at first as a sibset, but it’s grown on me, and now I think they’re lovely together)
Children of good friends:
Rebecca and Timothy
FIL’s family:
Jean (girl), Thomas, Alfred, John, Stephen, & Peter
His mom’s family:
Philip, Sidney (boy), & Rhoda

Asher, Violet, Harper (girl), and Garrett–made up, but really stood out to me–like the matching endings on the opposite genders.

Brittany Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 3:12 pm

The worst set – I know this is about the best but the worst is so much more fun: Tyler and Kyle. Twin boys. So many people would call them Tyle and Kyler. All the time.

Myka Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 3:27 pm

I know of several sib-sets that can be viewed either as good or bad…

Dominick and Felix – twin boys about 8 months old (I cant stand this set)

Shelly, Susan, David, and Darren – siblings in their 40’s

Jason, Sarah, and Nathan – siblings in their 20’s

Myka and Cody – my brother and I.

Ashton and Isabella – siblings 5 and 2 respectively

SLS Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 3:55 pm

Love:

A friend of mine has 7 year old twin girls: Lucy and Noor – both mean “light” in their respective languages.

I’m Stefanie and my brother is Brian – born in the 70s and 80s, I always thought our names went well together.

Hate:

I taught more than a decade ago and had students Wylie and Kylie (not twins, both boys), who had a younger sister Carrie. ugh.

A good friend of mine comes from a family of 6 siblings, whose names are just all over the place: Xiomara, Daisy, Cindy, Heidi, David, and another boy who I’m blanking on now.

JP Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 4:48 pm

A set of sisters I went to school with:
Jolie, Kier (Kee-air), Miel (Mee-el). I always thought their names were beautiful (as were they). Their mother is French.

Another favorite set, Kiernan, Cullen, Maisy, Stellan, Lachlan.
Some of you may know these from the infamous “MckMama” blog!

Julie Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 5:50 pm

An old roommate of mine comes from a family of nine well-named children: Matthew, Christine, Nicholas, Nathan, Carrie, Joshua, Brendan, Justin, and Julia.
As for the bad-
My in-law’s neighbors are the cutest little girls, but I hate the sib-set: Lola, Lila and Lily. I will never get the names straight.
An incredibly, zealous family in my church have named their children: Zyon (b), Silas (b), Esther(g) and Nazareth(b).

Linelei Says:

August 12th, 2010 at 8:29 pm

I’m not normally a fan of rhyming names, but I know of two sisters named Helena and Marina. I feel the names are different enough that they each have their own name-personality, but they flow well together. They’re fun to say together, too.

L Says:

August 13th, 2010 at 1:38 am

I think mine and my sister’s names go well together: Gemma & Lucy.

My favourites:

Felix & Ottilie
Chloe & Phoebe
Florence, Arthur, Henry & Nell

The worst:

Chanel & Gucci (honestly, these were children not chihuahua’s!) and had a brother called Stuart.
Carly & Karl (twins)

Alexandra Says:

August 16th, 2010 at 12:21 am

If you’re in to the naming children after places… Venice, Vienna, and Valencia. All three beautiful and famous cities in Europe. Venice, Italy; Vienna, Austria; and Valencia, Spain. It might be your thing, you might think its awful. All the V’s will probably get confusing.

Macy Says:

August 18th, 2010 at 5:35 am

Euan & Eilish. I think that’s the spelling.

Brothers named Luke and Evan

Ashley, Dane, Sage and Bayley.
I liked mine even more when people started to combine my first and middle names to ashmae.

Maggie Says:

August 22nd, 2010 at 6:54 pm

My brothers and I are Helen Margaret (Maggie), Charles Nelson (Nels), and James Thomas (James). I think our names go quite nicely together.
My personal favorite, however, is Adah and Aria. They are both “A” names but I feel that they are different enough to be names of siblings.
The worst names I’ve heard in a “sibset” would probably be my cousins: Abigayle (Abby), Kaytlin, and Moryah. Their parents took relatively popular names and made them unique. I would have left them alone.

Lou Says:

August 22nd, 2010 at 7:07 pm

I hate my neighbors names. They are:
Madden, Mathilda, Matthias, Mariel, Maddox, Madelina, and Mason. Way too matchy..
I also cannot stand my nieces’ names together, although I like them seperately. They are:
Saige, Leia, Mackenzie, Sydney, and Arianna.

Reba Says:

August 23rd, 2010 at 9:57 pm

Me and my sister are:
Reba Cerise
Sophia Ondine
and people are always telling me how beautiful our names are together!

Other good ones I have heard:
Candice and Mikhayla

Colson and Kathrina

Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John(I know bible, but they do sound good)

The Worst:
The Entire Duggar family from 19 kids and counting, all those j’s are horrible!

kaitlyn Says:

August 24th, 2010 at 12:47 am

My friend is really into history and wanted to go with royal-sounding names. Personally, I love her sibset names.

William, Elizabeth & Beatrice (twins), and Caroline.

I think they all work well together, very classic. 🙂

I really dislike all the Duggar family J’s!

Marlys Says:

August 27th, 2010 at 11:29 am

There are 4 kids (including myself) in my family, but I feel like our names a really paired off to fit well in groups of two’s:

Michael Anthony and Lauren Maire
Marlys Adele and Celeste Elizabeth

The older two, Michael and Lauren, were born in Minnesota and myself and Celeste were born in Maryland…maybe the trek across the country threw my parents for a bit of a loop! I do adore our names though!

Ellie Says:

August 30th, 2010 at 3:20 pm

The best I’ve heard belongs to my cousins two little girls who are called Amelia and Charlotte (named before they zoomd to the top of the most popular list) and nicknamed Mia and Lottie.

Hmm…the worst..I can’t really think of the worst :/

Olivia Says:

August 30th, 2010 at 7:55 pm

okay, definitely the WORST sibset names ive seen are Nevaeh and Heaven (the same spelled backwards). I love Eva and Ava seperately but not together. So, my favorite would have to be Eva and Avery. Both have v’s and go well together.

Oh yeah, another bad one is Hannah and Savannah.

betzine Says:

October 4th, 2010 at 12:09 am

My brother and I are Joseph Aaron and Rebecca Pearl which I’ve always thought was a really strong pairing.

My mom is one of five and I feel like my grandparents did a really good job. They are, in order: Rosamund and Vanessa (twins), Shelley, Robert, and Michael.

Susan and Anthony (AJ)
Natalie, Alice, and Ian
David, Joshua, and Sophie

October 28th, 2010 at 4:12 pm

From a telegraph announcement(s):
Rose, Ottilie, Verena Edith, Amelia Florence and Cecily Grace
Martha, Alice, Faye
Edie and Amy. I just love these because Amy makes Edie (probably Edith) sound younger and more playful, but Edie makes Amy sound more serious and old fashioned
I have friends Sian, Erin and Tara

Jackie Says:

October 31st, 2010 at 1:38 am

I love the names of my co-worker’s children: Erin Elizabeth, Bridget Cathleen and Liam Thomas.

I have 9 cousins and 1 sister and almost all of us have kids…some the sets work better than others!

Best:
Anne, Emily, Faith, Caleb (all simple, elegant and classic names – even if I swear my cousin’s wife has an L.M. Montgomery fetish)
Judah, Miriam

Worst:
Callie Joy & Elias Aaron (the fluffy and the terminally-old)
Reece & Jacob (both boys – one uber trendy, one Biblical. Ugh)
Katie, Floyd and Holly (the girls’ names are fine but poor Floyd looks positively geriatric in comparison to his sisters’ bouncing cheerleader names – he IS a cute kid tho!)

Singleton children: Micah, Stephanie (mine!) and Siri

Best I’ve ever heard: Last summer I spent alot of time babysitting, and I especially adored this one families’ names:
– Grace (Gracie)
– Margot
– Brooke
– Matthew (Matt)
And they all fit their names so well. I loved how they all sounded together, but that’s just me.

Worst ever: Probably would have to be a friend of my sisters; she had:
– Kendall (girl)
– Korey (boy)
– Korainne (girl; pronounced KUR-inne)
– Stephen
Now, I liked Kendall and Korey. But I hate the spelling of Korainne’s name, and I thought it was so stupid to just throw Stephen in there with all the K names.

haha Says:

January 29th, 2011 at 10:38 am

I got you all beat. Met sisters named Cheyenne and Shayenne. Pronounced the same. Same nickname (shy*) Wow. Hope they don’t have another girl. What will they think of next?!

Paulina Says:

February 28th, 2011 at 3:39 am

BEST: Jennifer, Michael, Lauren and Tiffany (Jen, Mike, Lori and Tiff)
The oldest was born in 99 the youngest in 2008. What I like the most about this set is that the names were all popular in the 80’s and 90’s yet none of their 2000 classmates share the same name…so both common but not too popular. Also they all have nicknames!

WORST: Johnnie and Isabella
These are twins. What’s so bad about the names then? Their identical twins. Yes, Johnnie and Isabella are both girls. What is worse is that Johnnie has a pretty decent reason behind her name. Their father was named Johnny who died in Iraq 2 months before they were born. Meanwhile, Isabella was named after the Twilight character. I’m completley serious their mother is a Twi-hard.

MamaLong Says:

March 4th, 2011 at 12:20 am

It must have broken my grandmother’s heart completely to lose her first child to smallpox all those years ago. She had named that darling child Patience. Her names was Evelyn Frances Dorothy and my grandfather was Richard Fuller. The three children she had later were named Frances Nicola, Richard George and Michael Francis. Incidentally, mum goes by Nikky and her brother by George but the youngest goes by Mike.

So, to continue with the following generation:
I am Wilhelmina Frances and my brother is Alexander Michael.

George had three girls: Jessica Evelyn Catherine, Nathalie Jane Louise, Victoria Grace Alexandra.
Mike had two girls: Rachel Alexis and Monica Frances.

I like the sets because of the familial connections.

qazqaz8 Says:

Coley Says:

March 5th, 2011 at 4:01 pm

My siblings and I are a kind of all over the map but I think it works somehow:
Jaime Kae(nn JK, Jamesy, Jamers…lol)
Nichole Tia(me~ I have so many nicknames. Coley, Nik, Nixie, Nikki….My grandma always calls me Nikki-Tia.
Heidi Charlena Marie(nn Charlie, Heidi Mo, many more…lol)
Micah Nathanael(we called him Mickadaniel sometimes, which my dad hated)
Mark Aaron
Abigail Jane (Abbi)
Jonathan David (Jonny, Jon, JD)
Josiah Benjamin(Joey)
They got a little Biblical with the last 4, but it could be worse! My mom and her sisters crack me up:
Becky Jane
Barbara Joann
Brenda Janet
Bonnie Jean
Beth Julie and wait for it…. Caroline Fern!!!! Why?? My poor auntie always felt like the odd one out! My dad and his siblings go well (born in the 50’s & 60’s) Todd Allen, Mark Wayne, Bruce ??, Evelyn Louise, Carol Ann, Donna ???, April Lynn, & Valerie Kay. I love all my aunts names, esp Evelyn & Valerie.

Zoe Says:

March 14th, 2011 at 10:19 am

I like the names my parents chose for my sister and I. It’s Ria & Zoe. Both are short, two syllables, with two vowels in them. They didn’t even mean to do it.
My boyfriend is named Justin & has 3 brothers (Joshua, Andrew, & Michael). I like the names except I always felt like Justin’s name was left out because his name was more trendy while his brothers were more biblical.

Lilibet Says:

March 14th, 2011 at 10:22 pm

Oh NO THEY DIDN’T!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me tell you the story about the WORST SIBLING SET EVER.

My husband and I were leaving our ultrasound appointment together. I had popped into the bathroom and when I came out, he was bursting at the seams with laughter. We left the office and I asked him ‘what was so funny?’

Turns out there was another family waiting for an ultrasound. They had two young children with them. Are you sitting down?

There kid’s names were Sam and Ella.

Sam n’ Ella.

Like the food poisoning.

Those poor kids.

Lilibet Says:

megan Says:

March 15th, 2011 at 2:49 am

The WORST has to be my mothers siblings! There is Tina, Nena, Regina and lorne( a boy) haha I really question what my grandparents were thinking! lorne doesn’t even fit in with all the ina’s! Another set I don’t like is my two neices which are barely a year apart.. the oldest is Emma and the baby is Ella.. they are too similar! I only have one child at the moment named Kynlee but I can’t find a good name for baby number 2 that fits.. any suggestions?

Hannah Says:

March 15th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

My cousin’s kids all have nature themed names, ages 1-19, respectively: Rayne, Gavin, Stone, River, and Hunter. All rather short follow a pattern of vowels in similar places.

Another good one is my aunt and uncle’s kids; Jacob and Austin. Both are simple in pronounciation and go together.

Now onto fictional names.

In the Harry Potter series, the Weasleys have a WONDERFUL set of names; Ginny, Ron, Fred, George, Percy, Charlie, and Bill (which I believe is short for either William or Billius, I can’t remember.)

However, a rather bad sibset are the children of Harry Potter himself. The names alone sound good, but together, it’s strange. Lily, James, then Albus. I just don’t think they all flow together, what with the names James and Lily being more common and Albus being, well, very uncommon. However, they’re all named after war heroes, so at least they followed a pattern.

Janet Says:

March 16th, 2011 at 11:07 pm

The sibset names that stick out the most for me are still a pair of twins I sat for over ten years ago, Pearl and Opal. I still can’t decide if it’s crazy or funny or fantastic. Probably a little of all since they were the 8th and 9th kids to the family and third set of twins!!! Actually their older sisters (twins) are Maya and Gloria and together are an all time favorite sibset of mine.

JayCee Says:

March 19th, 2011 at 2:14 am

Ahh, an aunt of mine, who I think picked awesome and somewhat unique names, has a Delan Isaiah, Nate Matthew and Chase Adam.
however, another family member picked some.. odd name for her kids. Austyn Ressel (which isn’t bad, but wait for it.) Skye Teeny, Summer Rayne and Storm Cherry….

JayCee Says:

March 19th, 2011 at 2:17 am

My husbands family as well, were quite the few..
Parents are Dwight & Dianne. They had Devan (my husband, Desiree, Deidra and Derek. all within no more than 18 months from eachother. I don’t know how she did it… ha

Marriah Says:

March 22nd, 2011 at 1:19 am

My parents named my older sister Merlynn, I’m Marriah, and my brother is Merrick.
then my parents are Michael and Michele.
We all have seven letters and start with M.
I like it because it’s kind of cheesy, but they’re all unique in their own right and don’t distract from each other..

My little nephews are Elijah and Hugo which I love as well.

My cousins named her twins Skyler and Scarlett (a little too close for comfort, though).

Elle1288 Says:

Seeing as I work in a school I see my fair share of names. My favorites are Ava and Owen – both vowel names. Neil James and Sean Thomas. Both very masculine and strong. Worst are Daria and Cyra (twins!) and Mylee, Andreau, and Ty. Yuck. Twins that I went to school with Brandy and Mandy, (in their 20’s and still getting confused) and their little brother Randy.

My grandpa’s sibset is right on point for what is “popular” now!

Helen, Manly, James, Violet, Adeline, Berenice & Mary Louise.

My husband’s sib set is great and classic;

Paul, Louisa, Peter and Ellyn

WORST:

Diamond & Cain (sister & brother)
Angel & Chastity (sisters)

The best I know is –
* Milo Sebastian
* Poppy Belle
* Olive Delilah
* Felix Oscar
* Isla Willow (due this year)

My friend’s children. The names are all quite cutesy, but they are so lovely together.

I also know a Clementine, Mathilda and Penelope (Clem, Tilly and Penny), which I think is lovely. Not sure on the middle names though.

The best I’ve ever seen, but not personally known, was from the birth announcements in the Telegraph: Ottilie Bluebell Molly, Lauren Alexandra India and Plum Maisie Marion. Simply gorgeous <3

One sibset I just can’t understand is that of my sister’s friend and her siblings they are Griffin, Jennah, Bennett and Grayson… All the boys have pretty unique not heard everyday names and then theres the poor girl with a very common name

Milly Says:

April 19th, 2011 at 5:03 pm

My brother and I are Rhiannon and Elliott, and I’ve always thought they go together well. Plus I think my parents did well for us nm-wise, being born in 1994 and 1997 respectively.

I know a Mary, Isaac, Annie Grace and Jonah, and while these are all nice names, I just think the double-barrelled Annie Grace sticks out a bit. Noone ever calls her that, its Annie or AG.

Ireland Says:

April 20th, 2011 at 1:56 am

The worst set i’ve heard was Rebecca A and Olaf Liberaci.
Incase you’re wondering, ‘A’ is in fact the middle name. They wanted Rebecca’s initials to match her fathers initials but couldn’t decide on an ‘A’ name they liked so left it at that.

Olivia Says:

April 20th, 2011 at 6:29 pm

I know two gorgeous twin girls named Mabel and Mirabelle! OK, so they’re a bit matchy, but you have to admit they are absolutely adorable together.

My husband is one of 6 boys – Jonathan (Jon), James, Gregory (Greg), Daniel (Dan), Matthew (Matt), Benjamin (Benj). My hubby is the only one who still exclusively goes by his full name. I always thought Greg was the odd one out with all the others appearing in the bible.

Worst sets? My high school friend’s twin sisters – Veronica and Vanessa (with sisters Katrina and Melissa).

A family of 6 girls we know – Vanessa, Angela, Michaela ( Mi-kyla), Deidre, Derika, and Shayna. The “ah” at then end of all of them seems too matchy to me, but maybe that unifies the set?

I would like all my kids to have different initials. My first two unintentionally have surnames for first names (Mckenna and Barrett) so my third (Cadence) is left out. Expecting number four and I hate that the names I favour are more popular now. I love Violet and Bryn for girls. I think Bryn fits more with my “different” names, but is another B name.

K Says:

April 24th, 2011 at 12:19 am

My late father-in-law and siblings always seemed like a strange combo to me. The first two children were born in the Netherlands Ubbo Albert (m), Siska Katherina Albertina (f) and then a third many years later in Canada – named Albert (not sure of the middle name). I think Albert is a family name, but really – all three kids?

araminta Says:

April 30th, 2011 at 11:06 pm

Octavia, Adelaide & Eugenie
Imogen & Harriet (twins)
Jack, Maisie & Charlotte
Oscar, Finlay & Fergus (Finlay & Fergus are twins)
Genevieve, Annabel & James
Eliza, Annabel & Thomas
Edward, Charles & Adelaide

Eleanor & Sebastian
Freya, Jock & Araminta ‘Minty’ (not my own)
Henry, Charles & Daisy
Henry & Edward

Eloise, Clementine & Genevieve

May 1st, 2011 at 6:28 pm

the best i’ve heard is a friend of mines family

Henry, George & Oliver <– they all just seem so classy but at the same time cool and interesting. They all match there names well too!

another one i really like is Adelle & Drake. For some reason they just go perfectly together to me!

other ones i like;
Harper & Avery (both girls, i babysat them)
Ruby & Mason (both before the names were popular they're about 19 and 16)
Victoria & Noah
Holly & Adam
Layla & Brandon

the worst i've heard;
Dakotah, Montannah & Savannah (…really?)
Justin, Hank & Jillian (why leave one out?)
Colleen, Colin & Marin (two almost the same names, not twins and then one weird one…)
Sean, Lynnie & Betty Jean "B.J" <– A BOY. mostly just cause of bj, sweet kid but such a bad name! :/

Kacey Says:

May 4th, 2011 at 12:38 am

One of the worst (though I’ve gotten used to it by now) would be my mother and her siblings.
She’s the oldest of ten. (yes, 10.)

Rosalyn (Rose)
Fe
Roy
Ronald
Editha
Ismael
Rosabella (Bella)
Rosemarie (Marie)
Rosanna (Mimi – have no idea why she wasn’t just Anna…)
Raquel

Jo Says:

my siblings and are Joanne, Alan and Beth which i always thought was lovely but i also know someone who has twins Mollie and Olivia which just go so well together

Kate Says:

May 13th, 2011 at 3:14 pm

I’ve found that my favorite sets of names come from people that were roommates in college.

How about the triplet (or sister) sets of:
Amy, Emily, and Erin
Meaghan, Kristin, and Ana

Or:
Stephanie (steph) and Mia
Marissa and Emily
Bri and Kate
Annie and Sarah
Tricia and Erin

littlebrownpony Says:

May 13th, 2011 at 10:55 pm

Some sib-sets that I know and like:
Keira, Olivia and Spencer
Francesca and Bianca
Maddie, Sean and Charlotte
Estella, Hunter and Boden

Some RL combos that I know and am not a fan of:
Zach, Chloe and Juliana. I think Zach and Chloe sound SO perfect together and Juliana just doesn’t fit at all.
Michael, Kate and Allegra….seriously–Allegra? Out of nowhere?

Ally Says:

May 14th, 2011 at 1:36 am

NOT KIDDING. I know twins named Orangejello and Lemonjello. Pronounced La-mon-gel-lo and Aron-gel-lo.

Bm Says:

May 18th, 2011 at 9:58 am

I came across sisters a few years apart named Tia & Maria. I always wondered if they might’ve had brothers named Jack & Daniel!

Bbnagy Says:

May 19th, 2011 at 9:43 am

Before I quit to stay home with my children, I taught at an elementary school. There were some horrible sib-sets there:

Twin girls Victoria and Victorianne (named after dad Victor)
Twin boys Anthony and Antonio (named after dad Anthony)
Triplet boys Darvin, Marvin and Jarvin
Four kids in one family all named after dad Ron: Ronesha, LeRonika, and twin boys Ronald and Ronnie.
Brother and sister Edward and Edquisha Edwards.
Brother and sister Derrick and Derrika.

I can’t even think of any sets I like!

Kate Says:

May 23rd, 2011 at 10:44 pm

The worst – 2 sisters named Raquel and Chanel

A sibling set – Payton, Fielding, Eaton , Smith , Macey and Hannah. Macey and Hannah are girls but the rest sound like a law firm.

The best – Anna, Rebekah and Benjamin ( my nieces and nephew)

Triplets I knew – Megan, Melissa and Matthew

Somewhere in the middle –

Siblngs – A boy named Blake and a girl named Bennett. I’ve known girls named Blake and boys named Bennett so it might get confusing

Twins named Chase and Mason. When you say Chase and Mason together it sounds like you are saying Chasing Mason.

Leigh Says:

June 9th, 2011 at 11:51 am

Not sure how I feel about my siblings and my name. We are in this order,

Leigh
Adam
Jennifer ( as I posted in another sib post I named her)

I am actually am obsessed with names.

I think one of the best sibsets is my niece and nephew

Jada(girl 9)
Asha(boy 14)

I however do like names that have the same ending. I have Hayden(boy) and would like more. Jensen(boy) and not sure on a name I like to fit in there.

Leigh Says:

June 9th, 2011 at 11:59 am

My two girls name too add to my sibset would be:

Teagan or
Raegan 😀

Annie Says:

June 21st, 2011 at 10:50 pm

I know twins named Timothy and James. I think they sound nice..if it weren’t for their nn’s Timmy and Jimmy. Luckily James goes by JJ.

Stephanie Says:

June 22nd, 2011 at 6:10 am

Worst sib-set would have to be a pair of identical twins named Madeline and Mandilyn. Seeing those names right next to each other paired with almost indistinguishable children is enough to make anyone dyslexic imho.

Another bad sib-set would be yours truly, my brother and sister. ‘Stephanie’ is an extremely common, culturally neutral, yet obviously feminine name and was passed on to me from my grandmother. My brother’s name is a rearrangement of letters from my father’s name, paired with ‘Wilhelm,’ thus combing made-up and quirky with very old-fashioned and potently Germanic. My sister was named ‘Benin’ (intended as a feminine version of Benjamin after my granddad), but it’s also the name of a country in Africa which has no relevance to my family whatsoever, plus most people who see it written down for the first time think it belongs to a man named ‘Bennie.’

Best sib-set, I would have to say Cedric and Christopher. I’m not usually a fan of same initials, but the difference in pronunciation makes it distinct, while the Cs give a sense of camaraderie.

Obviously I also love my boys’ names: Laurent and Etienne. Both as Gallicised versions of family names (Lawrence and Stephen) and the meanings are complementary as well, with Etienne meaning ‘crowned’ and Laurent meaning ‘laurel’.

BeeJay Says:

June 28th, 2011 at 12:28 pm

Sometimes what seems a “strange” set of names doesn’t matter to those who hear them frequently (friends and family) or later in years. My father’s and his siblings are Robert, Bill, Ervin, Marion, and Edna. We never thought it strange that Robert was not shortened and William was. My niece’s girls are Ashton, Amber, and Mia (still occasionally called Mia Grace at age 4). Some lobbied for the name Abigail for Mia because Ashton, Amber, and Abigail just “went” together so nicely, but they liked “Mia” and I can’t imagine that child having any other name. I suppose the only protest I do agree with is when there’s an ultra modern name stuck in with old fashioned names or vice versa. A Morgan, Dakota, and Hazel just really does sound strange. But you never know what drives the naming process. (Usually it’s the girls’ names that sound “off.”)

Katie Ann Says:

June 28th, 2011 at 4:34 pm

My cousins are:
Andrew, Chase, Robert (Bobby), and Miles
Alta, Jordan, Parker, Winston, and Samuel (Sam)
Alexa, Phillip, Jade, and James
Paul, Ethan, Catarina (Cat), Isabella (Bella), Sofia (Fifi)
Madeline (Maddie), Beaumont (Beau), and Solomon (Saulie)
Katie, Chloe, Jake, and Sam
Charlene (Charly), Deven,and Deacon
Mia, Tyler, Joshua (Josh), and Ava
Lennon and Holland
Drake and Asher
…. those all sound pretty great to me!
I also know twins April and Megan which aren’t matchy but go together really well!
Bad ones……hmmm…. my mom’s friend’s kids are Lacey, Macey, Jaycee, and Hayes (b)too matchy!!

Rand Says:

July 23rd, 2011 at 9:25 pm

I went to camp with a set of triplets. Zoe, Deanne and Macklyn Their nicknames were Zoe,Dee and Ack. So when you said their names really fast, as children will do. It came out Zodiac. I still laugh about it. This was 30 years ago. I am going to be a grandmother for the first time. My daughter will NOT let me help name the baby. Everything I suggest she says it too out there. She was named after a character in a book. She has to explain it every time.

Sandra Says:

July 25th, 2011 at 4:44 pm

My crazy, hippie aunt and uncle named my four cousins (two girls and two boys):
Yarrow
Sage
Forest
Cloud (poor guy) 🙁

In my job I see a lot of families and their names…some I’ve liked are:
Arden & August (girl & boy)
Lucas, Andrea (ahn-DRAY-uh) & Elena (mom is from Spain)
Lily & Lola (I know someone else said it was a “worst,” but I liked it)
Mason & Meredith
Thomas, Benjamin & Sophia
Jamison & Rowan
Alexander, Maximus & Tiberius (although I would never choose these names, they definitely go together!)
Andrew & Anna-Kate
Tristen & Dalton
Sophie & Teagan (twin girls)
Noah, Joshua, Sarah & Rebekah
Cole & Chloe

My poor parents. My dad’s family is Marvin, Mitchell, and Michelle. My mom?
Laura
Larry
Lenore
Leigh
Lisa
Lynda
…Ted Guess who’s the black sheep of the family?

I’ve always liked the flow of me and my siblings. Kelli, Rachel, Emily, and Autumn. My daughter is Lily (hate that it’s a trend now) I’m really liking the name Lydia, but I’m worried people will assume I was trying to name them alike.

I did teach twin boys who were Lemonjello and Orangejello. WORST. SET. EVER. I’m sorry, but that’s worse than my friend whose aunts were all named Mary. (There were 5 or 6, and they went by their first and middle names.)

September 4th, 2011 at 10:05 pm

Simon, Sam, Erik and Edd (twins), Jo-Jo, Nicko, and Jenna

Now that I’m older, I like the names my mother chose for me and my brother…I’m Sarah Jane and he is Joshua David…both timeless, both biblical, although we’re Catholic, and beleive it or not, there are some people who think we’re Jewish just bc of our names. I loooove my kids’ names. The boys are Jack Morgan, Hunter James and Remy Carter, and my baby girl is Stella Faith. I also like my sister-in-law’s sons names, Casey and Reese. I hear a lot of people mistake them for girls, but to my ear they’re clearly boys names. My brother’s girls are Rory and Halle, which I think are adorable.

Other good ones among children we know: Trevor and Cassidy (Cassie); Aidan and Adeline; Paul, Ryan, & Andrew; Trent, Carrie, & Breanne.

Not so much: HS friends MaryAnne & Domenica…why give one such a classic name and the other so exotic?? Zoey and Gretta…

And these, I’m horrified to say, are my cousins: Marshall, Tucker, Hank, William, Junior…yes the kid’s Birth Certificate says “Junior”….get it? I’m scared if they have one more they’ll call him Credence Clearwater Revival…

I think my family, overall, has done a great job with names.

My great grandparents, Lucille and Walter, had Walter jr (my grandpa), Clarence and Diana.

Walter and Mary had Kenneth, David, Judy, Barbara, Denise and Dena (the last two are twins!).

Kenneth had four sons, two from his first and two from his second wife. I prefer his second sibset, Julian and Isaiah. Great sibset, imo.

David and Judy didn’t have any kids. Denise had Aaron and Jesse and her twin had Olivia, Denise, and Mark.

Barbara, my mom, did a great job with her children’s names as well.

I personally think my brother and I have great names, Ryan James and Nicole Jane.

Mia and Madison (twins)
Lakeisha, Shanaea, Zalia and Nathaniel (Nate)
Charlie (girl) and Jett (boy)
My cousins Justin and Brody

Some bad ones I’ve heard are:
Alex and Alan
Jayden, Jamie and Jane
Noah and Noel
Brandeece and Clareice

Also, no kidding, my neighbor had triplets 3 months ago and named the Ronald (Ron), Harry and Hermione! Harry Potter is awesome, but this is too far! Also, Ron and Hermione marry in the book … lol

Malaria Says:

December 19th, 2011 at 9:51 am

Best would be Gwyneth, Lillian, Naomi, and Phineas. The names just seem to fit each other and the actual kids so well.
Worst would have to be my cousins:
Jacob
Joshua
Jessica
Jocelyn
Jordan(g)
Jasmine
Justice
Savannah
Not only did they get named Duggar style, poor little Savannah doesn’t get a matching name.

My sister is a teacher and one of her students was named Joanne but went by Jo her younger sister Samantha (Sam) and her older sister Alexandra (Alex). i love how they are all such different names but are matched by the nicknames.

Also me and my siblings are pretty good Charmaine “Charli”, Jacqueline “Jaxie”, Michaela “Miki”, Molly “Mo”, Emily “Milly”, Erika “Rikki”, Anna “Dodo (meant to be Annie)” and Harriet “Hattie”.

The worst Elizabeth “Lizzie”, Isabelle “Izzie” and Lisa.

Obviously I’ve picked out a little too many but I like this sibset for three girls and three boys –
Forrest James
Thomas Wyatt,
Austin Tadman,
Maxine Rae,
Wren Lee,
Vivienne Grace.

I think they go quite well as they’re all quite old school hipster but still individual.

‘Imogen, Tillie, Allie and Lyla’
My half sisters are Emma, Anna and Lia. Possibly not the best ever :/

Worst sibset? Lorelai, Kourtnai and Rosaleen!
Or possibly even worse Liam, Will and William. Not sure what their parents were thinking,

tasia_janay23 Says:

May 2nd, 2013 at 4:22 am

Besides the rhyming, my parents did a good job with my sisters and I: Anastasia Janay, Kianna Danae, Darien Renee

Beckham, Oliver, Violet Rue

Colby (b) & Camryn (g)

Nico and Leo – again, too matchy

HerMajesty Says:

July 22nd, 2013 at 10:36 pm

The best one I have heard, it that of my best friend. Being that she is one of a million Jennifer Maries, she made up for it with her magnificintly named children.
Rahab Annaliese
Eliana Roxanne
Marcus Anthony & Eugenia Noelle

One of the worst, though not bad names, is not that great because of one little problem.
Reed Anthony
Rhett Adam
Rider Ashley
Rachel Alaina
Robin Arthur
Rebekah Annabel
and the slight bump that is the twin of Rider Ashley, Zoey Belinda. In the middle of six R babies, all with the same initials, why Zoey Belinda? Its a beautiful name, but dosen’t go with her brothers and sisters

Bai Says:

August 7th, 2013 at 1:16 am

I love my siblings names. I like my name but feel like it doesn’t fit with theirs! They are:
Siobhan
Bailie (me)
Declan
Cormac

Our last name is O’…..so the irish names fit well. All strong, really great Irish names. Then….Bailie. What???

Bai Says:

August 7th, 2013 at 1:19 am

Also, one of the bet sibsets I know are Levi, Max, and Owen!

The worst is Storm (b), Ocean (g), and Meadow (g). With a baby sister on the way expected to be called Snowflake…..

Name_Nerd Says:

August 29th, 2013 at 10:37 am

Me and my sibling are Isabella, Daisy, Madeline, Liam.

One sibset I really loved when I heard a lady call it out at the park was Owen, Johannah, Colby.

August(b), Matilda(g), and Josiah(b) When a lady said this at my little brother’s daycare I had to comment on how original it was.

WORST:
Ella(g), Elliot(g), Ellery(g), Andrew(b).
Anna, Anthony, Angelo
I heard one sibset where they went with a theme and stopped on their forth child: Savannah, Niall, Rowan, cute, nice original names, then their forth child: Ava which is the fifth most popular name in America she’s known as Ava M in her class due to fact that there are 3 other Ava’s.

StrawberryLoo Says:

December 20th, 2013 at 4:15 pm

Some I know, lots of lovely gems with these sibsets:

Asher & Matilda
Io & Acacia
Jonah & Olive
Miles & Levi
Nolan & Nettle
Tobias & Allathea
Wyatt & Emma

One of my friends has a girl name picked out, so her sibset would be: August & Azalea

I love the taste of my friends, the kids all have really interesting names.

kitchi1 Says:

June 12th, 2014 at 8:38 am

I think Max & Lily is a very nice sibset.

One of the worst would be Chris, John, and Cris-John. No joke. The parents let their children, Chris and John, name the baby.

kitchi1 Says:

June 12th, 2014 at 8:43 am

Another bad one would be Kamrynn and Kambree. There was another girl, too, but I never got her name.

cajucat Says:

Both are female takes on male names, but done differently (ex: they could have taken another name and simply tacked an A at the end)

September 2nd, 2016 at 5:11 am

Me and my brothers are Eve, Edward nn Ned and Oliver nn Oli.
My mum didn’t realise how popular Oliver is until after he was born. I didn’t realise how popular Eve is until I started high school and there were six of us.

Other interesting sibsets:

Harrison, Agatha nn Aggie & Lydia (my stepsiblings. If my stepmum had had more daughters they would have been called Juniper and Clementine)

Rohan (pr like Rowan) and Finnian nn Finn (twins)

Angus, Hamish and Ishbel (Scottish obviously)
